Oregon

  • Camping World of Hillsboro National Tour Stop – 6503 SE Alexander Street, Hillsboro, Oregon
  • Camping World of Eugene National Tour Stop – 90855 Roberts Rd Colburg, Oregon
  • Camping World of Portland National Tour Stop – 24000 NE Sandy Blvd., Wood Village, Oregon

Oregon is a verdant state, full of evergreen forests dense with moss-covered Douglas Firs and Western Hemlock. Drive out to the coast and enjoy craggy coastlines cloaked in mist. Head inland, toward Bend, and you’ll climb in elevation to Oregon’s high desert, a world-class destination for hiking, climbing, and craft beer. There’s so much to see and do in Oregon it warrants a long stay to cover all the diverse landscapes that make up “the Beaver State.”

If you find yourself around Portland, make a road trip out of a scenic loop out to the coast. Take Highway 26 headed for Canon Beach and enjoy the scenic drive through the Tillamook State Forest. Stop at Canon Beach to get out and walk to Haystack Rock. Take your time as you drive south along the Pacific coast on Highway 101. Pull off at scenic overlooks, like Hug Point, where a waterfall rushes right into the ocean. Grab lunch in any one of the quaint coastal towns, like Manzanita or Garibaldi. Embrace the local specialties, like oysters or seafood chowder, and wash it down with a local craft brew. Loop back toward Portland at Tillamook, where you can grab ice-cream for the road at the Tillamook Creamery.

Washington

  • Camping World of Spokane National Tour Stop – 19651 E Cataldo Ave Liberty Lake, Washington
  • Camping World of Pasco National Tour Stop – 9420 Sandifur Pkwy Pasco, Washington
  • Camping World of Burlington National Tour Stop – 1535 Walton Dr Burlington, Washington

“The Evergreen State,” is an outdoor lover’s dream. The state is best known for Olympic National Park, just north of Seattle. The lush park covers 1,442 square miles and encompasses old-growth forest, glacial peaks, rainforest, coastline, and natural hot springs.

Book an RV site at the Sol-Duc Hot Springs Resort within Olympic National Park. Enjoy full hookups and access to the hot spring pools. For some exercise, embark upon the six-mile Lovers Lane Loop, an approachable hike departing from the Sol Duc Area. During the day, explore glacial carved lakes on a boat or paddleboard. Visit the Olympic National Park website for more things to do and sample itineraries.

Northern California

  • Camping World of Vacaville National Tour Stop – 5065 Quinn Road, Vacaville, California
  • Gander RV & Outdoors of Redding National Tour Stop – 3750 Auto Mall Drive Anderson, California
  • Camping World of Sacramento National Tour Stop – 1039 Orlando Ave Roseville, California

As you head north from San Francisco, California turns into an evergreen patchwork of national forests. Redding serves as a sublime jumping off point for seeing the best of Northern California. Visit the local Gander RV in Anderson, then head outside of town to Lake Shasta. Take a scenic catamaran lake cruise on your way to view the Shasta limestone caverns. A popular excursion for families, the Shasta Caverns experience is an opportunity for roadschooling — learning about the geology of the caverns from tourguide experts.

Castle Crags State Park, a little further north from the lake Shasta, features magnificent granite plutons spiking the skyline. Explore the park on foot with more than 28 miles of hiking trails. Anglers will enjoy trout fishing in the Sacramento river, and rock-climbers will find no shortage of challenging walls to send.

Northern Nevada

  • Sierra RV National Tour Stop – 9125 S. Virginia Street Reno, Nevada

Combining the best or outdoor recreation and dazzling entertainment, the Reno-Tahoe area is a hard place to be bored.

Ski bums will enjoy being based out of Lake Tahoe. The glacial lake is dissected by the California-Nevada state line and ski resorts dot the lakeshore. Head to Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe for 1300 acres of groomed ski runs.

Lake Tahoe Nevada state park is the largest on the shore of Lake Tahoe and is easily accessible from Reno on the northeast side of the lake. Launch your own boat or paddleboard from the park, or just enjoy the rocky beaches and hopefully some sun.
